Great times back then. It's too bad that things have changed so badly for the worse. We've lost a lot thanks to libtards and enviro-nazis!

Too bad about the graffiti. That's gotta be relatively recent.

Great images of Panamint City. I've been curious about the area for awhile. I've done many of the standard hikes with trails in the area, but am curious about some of the sites off the beaten path. I assume that it's best to hike up to Panamint City in either the spring or the fall and that it's a little hot during the summer and more than a little chilly during the winter. Am I correct?

happy_hiker: Spring or fall probably is best. The summer can be hot at the bottom of the canyon, but if you pick the right day it might work. Just watch out for rattlesnakes. The bottom of the canyon is thick with rattlers! Winter can be pretty cold up above 6000 feet, but some like it cold. So it's possible to get up there all year long, but it's a matter of the kind of temperatures you're comfortable with. Also after a rain is not a great ideal especially now that much of the old road is washed out.

I'd imagine that there's lots of water coming down the falls at the bottom of the canyon right about now. I've been up there a couple times, but the water was never all that difficult to deal with. Probably not the best place to be following a heavy downpour!
